Fall Offers a Slew of Brain-Themed Events in NYC

Brain Event

Summer is officially over and we’re gearing up for a busy–and brainy–fall in New York City. There are a lot of public events coming up that we wanted to highlight.

First up, our neuroscientist friends at braiNY are headed to CAVEAT on September 29 for a neuroscience-themed happy hour. With promises to teach you “science-based party tricks from experts that will make you the coolest kid at the party,” this is surely an event not to be missed.

Keeping the momentum going, CAVEAT is hosting another neuroscience event the following day, September 30, featuring none other than Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives member Wendy Suzuki, of New York University. Come listen to her talk about practical neuroscience for everyday life, including the long-term beneficial effects of physical aerobic exercise on a wide range of brain and cognitive functions.

Looking into October, Columbia University Neuroscience Outreach invites members of the public to learn about their research and tour their labs in the Late Night Science series. The October 18 event will address the popular topic of the gut-brain connection in “Gut Feelings: Gut-brain crosstalk and its importance for feeding behavior and metabolism.” The event is free, but you must register.

For music enthusiasts, head on over to Columbia’s “Music and Meaning” seminar, on October 19, which will feature three renowned scholars from the humanities and cognitive science. Held at its Italian Academy, the evening is free and open to the public, but again, registration is required.
